BWW Special Sunday Feature: BroadwayWorld.com's '10 to Watch in 2010' 2009/12/06
Posted: 12/7/2009
We concur that The Phantom of the Opera is a great piece of work. THE PHANTOM OF MANHATTAN, however, was a disgrace. No badly written fanfiction that claims the original author of Phantom was wrong about his own characters deserves a second glance. The Phantom let Christine go because he loved her that much. LOVE NEVER DIES simply cashes in a worldwide success and threatens to undo that beautiful redemptive ending for the sake of a guaranteed hit. Do you really want to see Raoul as an alcoholic, The Phantom as a whiny youngster singing Disney-type lyrics dressed up in a clown suit worshipping a giant Christine robot, Meg as a whore and a ridiculous cast of characters including ones called "Gangle", "Squelch" and "Fleck"? Phantom is a complete story and should be left untarnished by this disaster beyond imagination.

Hate to be picky but Under The Blue Sky was far from being Catherine Tate's stage debut...she's been doing theatre since the mid 90s. However, I know that's not the main point of this article so I'll take my pedantic self far from here now.

It's a dreadful musical that does not deserved to be revived again. Grammer should do My Fair Lady.

Well since it's ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER than IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE PERFECT! Mark my words!!!!! You DON'T disrespect a man who write winner after winner after winner. Wanting everyone to see great theatre is his life's work! Can many people in the world say that?

Lloyd Webber has not had a hit on Broadway since Phantom. That was back in 1988. It is highly unlikely that LOVE NEVER DIES will be seen as "great theatre" by more than a mere handful of people with a negative intelligence quotient. Additionally, the 2004 motion picture travesty proves that Lloyd Webber does guarantee automatic perfection.

Susan Boyle's DREAM Continues To Top the UK Charts 2009/12/06
Posted: 12/7/2009
She is absolutely molten hot here in the states. I purchased her album at Wal-Mart the first day it came out and listened to it as I traveled across three states to see my daughter off from Ft. Benning, Ga on her way to Iraq. I was absolutely floored by Susan's new song 'Who I Was Born To Be' and I dedicated that song to my daughter and gave her my CD to take to Iraq. We listened to that song and 'Wild Horses' and could not stop crying. Anyway, on my way back home I tried to purchase another CD for myself and after crossing three states and going to multiple outlets I could find nothing. Everybody is sold out. One clerk at a Wal-Mart in Georgia said one lady had him call every Wal-Mart in the region because she just had to have more copies than she already had purchased. He had never seen anything like it. We are all waiting for another shipment to come in. Pure, Molten Talent!
